Ethics in Modern Yoga

Ethics in Modern Yoga

Two of Patanjali’s eight limbs of yoga highlight ethics. Although the Yoga Sutra’s teachings on yama and niyama have social aspects, their ultimate goal is renouncing the world. Unless we retreat like Iron Age ascetics, might they need rethinking? Are other rules more relevant to modern challenges, from social instability to environmental meltdown? Can yogic ethics be adapted to serve new priorities? Come and share ideas and discuss alternatives! Booking now for Sunday, 18 August (14:30 - 17:00), at Triyoga Camden.
